Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19729297A1] A method and a device for emptying large and small refuse containers as hitherto, without requiring a reduction in the container weight and emptying speed and with better use of the pump or pressure fluid system power. According to said method, the maximum power to be provided by the pump Lmax = Q.P is calculated either to generate the maximum pressure required for emptying large refuse containers: P = Pmax with Q < Qmax, or to provide the maximum volume flow required for emptying small refuse containers: Q = Qmax with P < Pmax, and pressure Pmax required for emptying small refuse containers is converted into a high volume flow, or volume flow Qmax required for emptying large refuse containers is converted into a high pressure. In addition to said pump (3), said device comprises at least one additional pressure fluid tank (100) which may be connected to the pressure fluid motor (14a, 14b) for emptying small refuse containers. According to an alternative embodiment, two pressure fluid motors (15a, b, 19a, b), which may be coupled for emptying large refuse containers, are mounted in parallel for every individual lifting and tipping or only tilting device.
